Bibs and Smocks have always been a part of my life in one way or another and I have been using them long before they were regarded as acceptable. I now wear a neoprene bib at home all the time now, even in bad, because of my dribbling and to protect my chest from any dampness. They are something I am proud to wear, even for business meetings at my office and in my profile pictures because that is a part of who I am, it is that simple.
I use full plastic smocks with arms when I really want to look my best before a very important meeting. There are a great tool for anyone who wants to make a mess but at the end still look their best. I strongly believe there should be used for anyone at any age doing messy art activities or prone to making a mess because I feel the worst thing you can do if gives someone some painting materials and tell them they must keep clean without offering them any protection!
Society is become more accepting of bibs and smocks and I think this is very liberating for many disabled people who can be themselves!
